Pastor Mike started his professional life as a computer technician. In that career he has had the opportunity to live in different parts of the US and also a short time in Germany. After more than 20 years in that field God called him to full time ministry. He has since then been serving United Methodist Churches in northwest Wisconsin.
Pastor Mike is married and has three children, 5 step children (all grown), and 11 grandchildren and step-grandchildren. Pastor Mike’s wife Lisa is also a pastor and serves three churches.
He enjoys camping, fishing, playing guitar and singing, and spending time with grandchildren. He also likes to go to movies and read science fiction and historical fiction.
In his ministry Mike emphasizes making the church family experience accessible to everyone. His goal is to take away the barriers that often alienate new people who might come to start their journey with God. The church family is encouraged to invite others to our events and Sunday morning worship.
